Sir R W Buchanan Jardine's Greyhound, Long Span, won the Waterloo Cup in 1907. Beating Glenbridge to the finals, Long Span's win was the first Scottish victory since 1880. Riviere painted this tender portrait when both he and Long Span were coming to the end of their lives. The dog is shown in a quiet, reflective mood, which may have been the mood of the artist, whose life had not been all he would have wished for

Aldin painted this picture for a groom to give to his bride as a wedding present, the German Shepherd Dog Dick Turpin, being her pet. The dog is shown alert and full of anticipation, perhaps of life ahead. Legend has it that Aldin completed the picture in four days, during which time Dick had to have a Keeshond puppy friend along to keep him company
